According to a report on, Faisal Shahzad, the man who has been arrested as a suspect in an attempted truck bombing in New York City’s Times Square, is a runner. Sort of. Here’s the relevant bit:

A woman who said she lived next door to Faisal Shahzad in Shelton, Connecticut, told CNN Tuesday that the man she knew was quiet and claimed to work on Wall Street in New York. “He was quiet. He would wear all black and jog at night. He said he didn’t like the sunlight,” Brenda Thurman said. She explained that Shahzad, his wife, two children and his wife’s two sisters lived next to her for about three years, moving out in July of 2009. Thurman said her daughter played with Shahzad’s daughter often.
